Great!  See my followup here:

Prospective mentors need to sign up on that site, and should propose a
project they'd be willing to mentor.

I do think it's OK for mentors to not be intimately familiar with the
part of the code that is being touched, as long as the project is simple
enough that they can pick up the technical details easily as-needed. A
lot of what mentors will help mentees with is the overall process (both
Git-specific parts, but also more general development issues). But I
think the proposed projects do need to be feasible.

I'm happy to discuss possible projects if anybody has an idea but isn't
sure how to develop it into a proposal.
